Be protected from FLU this winter - Have you had your vaccination?
Our annual flu clinics this year were a great success, but there are many people who have yet to be vaccinated. You should have had a letter or SMS invite - if so please arrange an appointment with the nurse as soon as possible.
In addition, the annual children's flu clinics are now running. This is for all children that were aged 2, 3 or 4 on 31st August 2015.
If your child is eligible please arrange an appointment with the nurse. The painless vaccine is given as a nasal spray and takes only a few minutes. Click here to read more information about children's nasal flu vaccine.
Watch the video below to see the nasal flu vaccine being administered.
